AS Monaco FC History
Despite having its home in Monaco, the team competes under the league system used in France for football. As a result of its eight league wins and five Coupe de France medals, Monaco is considered to be one of the most successful football clubs in all of France. Additionally, the club has competed in European football and finished in second place in both the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1992 and the UEFA Champions League in 2004.
Les Rouges et Blancs is the traditional name of the club, which also takes its name from the club’s historic colors of red and white (The Red and Whites). The European Club Association includes Monaco as a member country. It was announced in December 2011 that a Russian investment group led by billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev had purchased two-thirds of the club. The team was able to immediately return to Ligue 1 with the financial backing of Rybolovlev, and they went on to win the 2016–17 Ligue 1 season, which was their first league title in 17 years.
Since its erection in 1939, the original Stade Louis II was the venue for Monaco’s sporting events. The previous stadium was demolished in 1985 and replaced with the current one. It was constructed on a neighboring location that was made up of ground that had been reclaimed from the Mediterranean Sea, which has become a recurrent feature of the beachside surroundings of the stadium.
The venue is known as the Louis II Stadium in honor of a former Prince of Monaco, and it has a capacity of 18,523 spectators. In addition to playing host to a plethora of sports competitions and the finals of the European Cup, the Stade Louis II is famous for its nine distinctive arches. It was the site of every UEFA Super Cup played between 1998 and 2012; however, beginning in 2013, UEFA made the decision to move the tournament to a different venue each year. From 1998 to 2012, it was held in August.
Dmitry Yevgenyevich Rybolovlev is a successful Russian businessman and investor. He was born on November 22, 1966 in Russia. Rybolovlev was the owner of the potash firm Uralkali and in 2011 he became the President of the football club AS Monaco in the principality of Monaco. He is the father of Ekaterina and Anna Rybolovleva, his two daughters.
Rybolovlev has a net worth of $6.8 billion as of the month of April 2019, placing him 224th on the list of billionaires compiled by Forbes. As part of “The Bouvier Affair,” it is believed that Yves Bouvier, a Swiss art transporter, targeted him as one of his victims.
